Happy Old School Friday! We've been out of the mix for a minute now and missed a couple of great themes. But hey, we're back now and ready to rock. And that's a good thing because today's theme is Rock Songs.
Alright, I know what you're thinking; "What can you possibly know about rock music?" Well first of all, rock is simply an evolution of the blues, and a lot rock and roll hits have been remakes of old blues tunes (think Hound Dog). Second, I did spend most of my formulative years in Denver. You pretty much had to gain an appreciation for rock out there, and I'm glad I did. Otherwise I might have missed out on some really great music due to a closed mind.
The only problem I had is limiting my choices to only two songs. So since y'all already know from earlier Old School Friday's and Musical Interludes how much I like Black rockers like Fishbone and Living Colour, I decided to branch out a little bit to some of my other favorites today.
First up is one of the best bands in the world over the past 25 years, U2 with Beautiful Day.
Next is one of the groups I listened to a lot back in the day, mainly because of their amzaing drummer Neil Peart. Here's Rush (and friends) playing Closer to the Heart. Watch him wear those drums out.
Well, that was fun, but unfortunately, that's it for this week. Don't forget to check out the rest of the Old School Friday crew.
